There are still three weeks to go before 2018 and I am anxious to start on my sewing/quilting plan already.
We can't help but use January 1st as a day to re-evaluate and organize. It is just part of our culture it seems. Although in parts of my life I try to say "Just start today, why wait?", my 2018 quilting plan cannot be started too early. Mostly because I still have stuff I need to do before Christmas. *Cutting it just a little close here*
But also because a lot of my 2018 plan is based around monthly quilting. I'll be joining Kelly at My Quilt Infatuation on her Classic Meets Modern Quilt A Long!
I fell in love with this quilt the minute I saw it and I was beyond excited when I learned she was doing a Block of the Month style Quilt A Long for it. I am struggling with fabric choices for this one. I am still trying my hardest to not buy any new fabric, or at least not fabric for an entire quilt. I have a couple of choices, but nothing is screaming at me. What do you guys think?
- Pinks, Oranges, White - Think Cherry Blossoms and Spring time
- Mixed prints in Gold, Teal, Plum, White
- Black and White with one color tone-on-tone in it
- Neutrals & Browns
- Dark Purple & Charcoal greys with a little golden yellow
It is a tough decision for sure. I need to be ready by January though because that is when the first block is made. You should consider checking it out and joining us. It is going to be an amazing quilt and lots of fun too!
Our Bee Inspired group has decided to continue on for another year and so I will have new blocks each month for that as well. We had such a good time exchanging blocks. We are all so easy going and forgiving that it makes it much less stressful than an intense Bee with lots and lots of people. There are so few of us and I think we would consider each other friends, so we all have a really good time with it.
There are a few other things I will be doing in 2018, but I will have to cover those next time. :D
